Cherry chocolate cake recipe:


½cup/118 milliliters extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for greasing pan
1¼cups/250 grams granulated sugar
1cup/128 grams all-purpose flour
½cup/56 grams Dutch-processed cocoa powder
2teaspoons baking powder
2large eggs
¾cup/180 milliliters whole milk
1teaspoon pure almond extract
½teaspoon coarse kosher salt or ¾ teaspoon Diamond Crystal kosher salt
1cup/305 grams cherry preserves

¼cup/50 grams granulated sugar
¼cup/28 grams Dutch-processed cocoa powder
Pinch of kosher salt
¼cup boiling hot water
2cups/473 milliliters cold heavy whipping cream
Fresh red cherries, for garnish (optional)


Step 1
Prepare the cake: Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8-inch square baking pan with olive oil.

Step 2
In a medium bowl, whisk together the sugar, flour, cocoa powder and baking powder until evenly distributed and no lumps remain.
To a separate large bowl, add the ½ cup oil, eggs, milk, almond extract and salt and whisk until smooth, at least 30 seconds. Gently whisk the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until the last streak of flour disappears.

Step 3
Transfer the batter to the prepared pan and tap gently against the counter to pop excess air bubbles.
Bake until a skewer or cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean, 30 to 40 minutes. Let cool completely in the pan.

Step 4
Microwave the cherry preserves in a small bowl in 30-second intervals or in a small saucepan over medium heat until looser and slightly liquidy.
Spread the preserves evenly over the cooled cake.

Step 5
Make the frosting: In a large bowl, combine the sugar, cocoa powder and salt and pour over the hot water.
Either by hand or with an electric mixer, whisk until smooth. Add the heavy cream and continue whisking until billowy soft peaks form. When you turn the whisk upside-down, a peak of cream should flop over slightly like a Santa hat. Spread the frosting over the cake and, if using, garnish with the cherries. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
